WorldSBK will bring a refreshed Brand Identity for 2022, and we look forward to the season after two challenging seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

13th Round

A 13th round will take place, and we have some options for where this event could be, whilst it will be great to welcome Australia. And the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit back to the calendar, this time closing the season. 

The date is to be confirmed due to logistical challenges that require further analysis. I am pleased to welcome back two of 2021’s new circuits. The Autodrom Most and the Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit. We look forward to another fantastic season of WorldSBK action.”
